Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful colour of purple violets. This Malbec has a bouquet featuring: raspberry, blackberry and blueberry fruit with elements of bramble, cocoa and smoke. These are echoed in the flavours with a burst of crisp freshness on the tongue. Medium plus acidity, medium body and rounded tannins balance the earthy clove and lavender spice persistency in the smooth medium finish. Pair with blue cheese burgers and herbed crusted pork loin. 91 points - September 2016

Black briar, plum skin, spice, dried herbs and dried violets. 91 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)




Natalie's Review

Zuccardi Q Malbec 2013, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina: A fleshy ripe malbec with a touch of dark spice on the finish. Full-bodied and smooth. Great price for such quality. This wine was matured in French oak for 1 year. Lovely cedar and spice on the finish. Try it tonight with asado, the traditional Argentine outdoor barbecue, usually with beef. Drink: 2015-2019. 723478 14.50% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 90/100. January 27, 2017 Best Value Red Wine. Terrific Turkey Wine  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
